Fighter Jets Scrambled After AirTran Passenger Grows Unruly

Fighter jets were scrambled today after an AirTran passenger grew unruly during a flight.  The fighter jets being scrambled is the second time in just a matter of days that such an incident took place. 

The passenger on AirTran flight 39 grew unruly and refused to come out of the restroom.  NORAD ended up scrambling 2 F-16 fighter jets to escort the plane where the situation could be monitored. This all happened around 1:44 PM EST, and the passengers on flight 39 were able to finish their trip at 4:30 pm.

Everyone has been jumpy ever since a radical Nigerian with ties to Al Qaeda sewed explosives in the crotch of his underwear and then proceeded to try to blow up a plane, mid-flight , on Christmas Day.  Since then, security has increased and airlines and airports are becoming less and less patient with testy passengers.

Even though the terrorists didn’t succeed their main plan to end American lives, they did change travel as we know it.  Before you know it, carrying luggage on to a plane will become a thing of the past. There could be body scanners and heavier screening. This will cost the American consumer hundreds of dollars and airlines hundreds of millions of dollars – something the industry can’t really afford.

      This is getting a bit more subjective, but I much prefer the Zune Marketplace. The interface is colorful, has more flair, and some cool features like ‘Mixview’ that let you quickly see related albums, songs, or other users related to what you’re listening to. Clicking on one of those will center on that item, and another set of “neighbors” will come into view, allowing you to navigate around exploring by similar artists, songs, or users. Speaking of users, the Zune “Social” is also great fun, letting you find others with shared tastes and becoming friends with them. You then can listen to a playlist created based on an amalgamation of what all your friends are listening to, which is also enjoyable. Those concerned with privacy will be relieved to know you can prevent the public from seeing your personal listening habits if you so choose.
